    Well he is a hottie! He isn’t much of an actor though or at least he wasn’t on Desperate Housewives. He is just a year or two younger than the character but that is splitting hairs. The funny thing is that he was born in Dallas, TX which is interesting as Larry Hagman was born in Ft. Worth, TX.

      maybe it was the writing on Desperate Housewives and not the actor. josh is a great actor. did you catch him on “Over There”?

    No that guy should play Christopher. His looks are more suited to that part. He looks like he could be Jeff Ferdays son

    I agree also that Josh Henderson should be playing Christopher instead, and besides, they were both born in 1981.

  5. april-ann says:

    Matt Long (The Deep End, Jack and Bobby) should be playing Christopher.
